EdTech

Helping the Edtech Sector realise its potential

All those involved in education are facing a profound set of changes in the way they deliver and consume educational resources. The Education Technology (“EdTech”) sector has seen exponential sector growth over the past few years.

To help realise the potential for technology in the sector, suppliers need to convince institutions and their students that the platforms they can offer are sufficiently engaging and robust. In so doing, they also become more attractive to investors keen to ride on the success of the sector.

The Fladgate EdTech team has a deep and genuine understanding of the market, which allows us to play a central role in helping both UK and International organisations on their growth path. We are known for being able to provide a genuine full service offering covering the key legal disciplines, and have an ‘end-to-end’ ability to work with all levels of the supply chain, ranging from EdTech suppliers, through educational establishments, to investors.

Our specialist lawyers have hands-on practical experience. We use our knowledge and networks to seek opportunities for our clients and deliver robust and proactive solutions.

Fladgate and The Wisdom Partnership (TWP)

We have formed a marketing partnership with TWP to help EdTech clients get investment ready. Our unique partnership focusses specifically on the education supply sectors, which enables us to provide pragmatic and realistic advice that is designed to give you a commercial edge.
